Just added a "Metallica Master of Puppets Gravestone"
http://www.shapeways.com/model/1537633/metallica-pinball-master-of-puppets-gravestone.html?li=search-results&materialId=6

which you could try mounting near the drops on top of the plastics or at the back near the top in lanes or be creative to place them elsewhere

you can purchase directly from Shapeways USA.
flat white - $9.95
gloss white - $10.95

or I can print for $10.75 though will be slightly pitted white, not glossy.

It measures 40mm wide x 52mm high x 12mm deep and is hollow at the back to reduce the weight and manufacturing cost but you could also try to add lighting in there as well.

It has been print tested and has come up well, waiting for the camera to charge to take a photo.

Mate I'd be interested in getting one off you. I have an idea for one up the back near the left ramp.

Cheers

Put me down for one with the bell mod. if you want when I get my acdc, come over and take some pics of the grave marker mod on my metallica if you like on different parts of the playfield.

I have refined the Metallica Cross to have that gentle curve from the crosses tips to the main post very typical of the Military Gravestones found in the US and Europe.

It is
$10 for one
$20 for two
$27 for three


Postage is
$8 within Aus up to 400g worth of product.

and you can always take advantage and team up with mates and get a few things or look at a AC/DC Bell Block etc and get a saving in postage etc.

Sorry again photos in the Creature but lacking access to a machine close by.

went to a members place and was nicely surprised by the crosses installed on the ramps - I liked it - sort of completed a vertical emptiness at the back.

John said at night time the glow from the playfield backboard gave a cool glow to the crosses.

Installed some green fluro sling and inlane plastic protectors the other day, thanks GAP.  :)
The photos don't really do the effect justice as it looks way better in person.
The whole area around the apron and slings is a lot brighter.
Highly recommended mod.

a Sydney guy on pinside also does modified colour GI kits as well, a few hundred and lots of people also custom paint sparky and Dirty Donny every now and then does a batch of custom painted sparky's so check out his website or even better send him a email.
